Winter is just around the corner, so it’s time to get started on tidying your home’s landscaping and lawn. The professional landscaping team at Landwork Contractors has a fall clean-up plan customized to fit your needs. Here are just a few things to consider as you tidy your landscaping and prepare for winter. 

Leaf Removal

Jumping in a pile of leaves is a favorite autumn pass time for all ages. However, those leaves could destroy your lawn. Decaying leaves create slick spots on your lawn that could lead to painful falls. These rotting leaves can also increase the chances of mold, disease, and lawn pests. Have a professional completely remove them from your landscape before the damage is done. 

Trim Back Limbs

Limbs heavy from snow or ice often fall onto your property when you least expect it. Falling branches can knock out power lines, create electrical hazards, or damage property. Before winter sets in, have an expert landscaper remove limbs that are dry, weak, or overgrown. If you have limbs that are growing near power lines, alert your local power company. They will safely remove the limbs

Aerate and Overseed Your Lawn

Part of any good fall clean-up plan should include aeration and overseeding. Aeration helps remove thatch and open up your soil for nutrients and water. Overseeding puts fresh grass seeds into your lawn just in time for them to take root. You’ll be the envy of all your neighbors when you have an expert aerate and overseed your lawn.

Remove All Debris

During summer and fall, a lot lands on your lawn. From autumn leaves to old grass to falling sticks, everything needs to be raked and removed before winter. Make sure to include toys, tools, and hoses when you pick up. Any items left on your lawn can get buried in the snow, creating a hidden danger for anyone walking on your lawn. Debris will also suffocate your grass and impact your soil.  Clear out the clutter, and you’ll be much happier. 

Get Your Irrigation and Drainage Systems Updated

Winter snow melts. As it melts, it will need somewhere to go. Getting your drainage system winter ready can protect your home from dangerous slick spots and expanding pipes.
